When you experience a fire in your home, it can be a traumatic and devastating event. In addition to the smoke damage caused by the fire itself, there is also the potential for significant water damage from extinguishing the fire. As a result, it is important to have a professional company that specializes in residential fire damage cleanup to address the issue as quickly as possible. This post provides an overview of the fire and smoke damage cleanup work we’ve done in Carlsbad in the county of San Diego.
Last December of 2021, we worked on a job for a Carlsbad five-bedroom house that had been completely burned. The fire damage was extensive and included smoke and soot damage throughout the home. The fire started in the kitchen area and spread to the rest of the house. The kitchen sustained the most damage, with flames damaging cabinets, appliances, and fixtures. The rest of the home also had significant smoke and soot damage.
We sent a team of five technicians who worked on the house for 19 days. The first thing we did was clean up the house. We began by removing all the damaged materials from the home, including cabinets, appliances, carpeting, drywall, insulation, some fixtures, and personal belongings. The entire home was then cleaned using our specialized equipment and techniques.
Our deployed technicians used air scrubbers and Kilz to clean the studs. Negative air fans helped create negative pressure in the air, which effectively removed all contaminants and other harmful byproducts from the premises. We also used HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuums to collect soot particles and keep them from adhering to surfaces.
Our technicians worked quickly to clean up the extensive fire and smoke damage. We made it a point to remove all of the soot and smoke from the surfaces in the home. We then cleaned and disinfected all of the affected areas. The team made use of house fog with Benefect, a disinfectant solution, to bring the house back to its health-safe condition.
After removing smoke-damaged and saturated contents, we used thermal fogging mist, deodorizing agents, and ozone generators to remove smoke permanently. All these technologies helped eliminate dangerous chemicals from the house and restore the house to its original condition.
It was not an easy job, and it took a lot of hard work, but we were able to complete the job to the customer’s satisfaction. The homeowners were very pleased with the results of our fire and smoke damage cleanup services. Their home was soon returned to its pre-loss condition and they were able to move back in within a few weeks. They also appreciated our efforts to save as many of their personal belongings as possible.
